Re: Billy Hamilton continuing to excel at AA
I just want to get some confirmation on the vaule of steals -- this is what i have read:
1. guy steals 100 bases
2. gets caught 25 times
3. you double the amount of bases caught 25 x2 and subtract that from 100 bases stolen = 50 bases and then you multiplay that by .66 = 33.
At that point you can then add those bases to the players total bases and come up with a SLG%.
With Hamilton @ AA: 50 sb x 15(2)= 20 bases x .66 = 13 bases. You add that on to his total bases of 64 + 13 = 77 divided by 155 at-bats =
.498 SLG% along with a .429 OBA. I'm not sure the numbers make sense but if they do -you have a very valuable player.
Let's do his combined totals for the year: 154-72= 82 x.66= 54 +212= 266 total bases divided by 492 = .541 SLG + .418 OB% = .959 OPS
Are these values correct? Is this what his sorta true value is ??? i don't have enough sabermetric knowledge to know anymore -i've gotten old and have kept up with things as much as i used to.
